The New Presidency is going to be a lot like the “New Economy” of the 90s — all kinds of new tech and new titles, and then everyone loses all their money. The latest gimmick: Obama will do a weekly YouTube address in addition to the boring old wireless kind Bush did. Of course, we already have plenty of Obama YouTubes, like this one, but these new ones will be about fiscal policy and cap-and-trade and such like, not about how Obama is a Muslim, or Hitler. At least, we think that’s the plan. Unless… hey look, a puppy!
